The wines of Puligny Montrachet are among the most sought after and highly acclaimed white wines of the world and the domaine of Etienne Sauzet, composed of 23 acres, resides in the heart of Puligny Montrachet. Sauzet wines are well established examples of white Burgundies for their superbly finished, fruity, full-bodied structure. The Champ Canet is a prime example of the elegance, refinement and nobility that embodies a Premier Cru Puligny Montrachet.

"Here the beautifully layered nose is openly exotic with spicy aromas of mango, apricot, peach and mandarin orange. The medium weight plus flavors are more concentrated still with a sleek muscularity that contributes to the unctuous but not heavy mouth feel, all wrapped in an extract-rich, suave and beautifully balanced finish. While not nearly as mineral-inflected as the prior two wines there is simply more underlying material and ultimately this should be the better wine and certainly its track record would lend credence to that prediction."

"Pale bright yellow. Very ripe aromas of peach, pineapple, smoke and lichee; much fruitier on the nose today than the Truffiere. Silky, fat and a bit exotic, but with a mineral firmness supporting the pineapple fruit. Very rich wine with a strong acid structure and very good energy. This is allmost heavy today and needs further refinement during its final months of elevage. But terrific material here."
